“My Dad’s Dancing Skills Earned Him The Nickname Jackson” — Sina Rambo


In 2012, pop sensation, Davido, hit the limelight
with his hit song, ‘Dami Duro.’ With this song, he
wormed his way into the hearts of the Nigerian
music lovers.
However, in the chorus of the song, he made a
statement referring to the dance step of a
certain ‘Baba Shina Rambo’ but not many people
got the hint till Senator Ademola Adeleke won
the bye-election to become the representative of
the Osun-West senatorial district recently.
The senator, who is Davido’s uncle, is the father
of Nigerian singer, Sina Rambo. Shortly after his
victory, the Nigerian internet space produced
video footage of the senator giving some hot
dance steps during his campaign and a ‘victory
dance’ when he won the election.
PUNCH reached out to his son, Sina Rambo, who
is currently in the United States about his
father’s dancing steps and he said his father has
been dancing since the 80s.
He said,
“When the spirit of the Lord comes upon my
heart, I will dance like David danced. Ashamed? I
cannot be embarrassed with the way my father
danced. Look, my father will not change for
anything! He’s been dancing since the 80s or
why do you think they call him Jackson?”
The singer said that his father is probably the
best dancer in their house; he disclosed that
even though he has tried to compete with him on
several occasions, his father always won the
dance competition.
“Trust me at every family party, we dig it out but
he ends up winning because he just never stops.
Jackson! Baddest,” he said.
The singer was quick to add that even though
his father is a fantastic dancer, he is also a man
of wisdom.
“But don’t be misled; he is a man of extreme
wisdom who knows how to conduct himself at
all times. There is time to celebrate and there is
time to work. I’m sure he will definitely do a
great job serving his country to the best of his
ability,” Sina Rambo said.
The singer also took the opportunity to explain
why he adopted the name Sina Rambo despite
being linked with a notorious robber who
terrorised Nigeria in the 80. He said the name
has not in any way affected his brand negatively.
“Actually it started as a joke. Growing up in the
90s in Nigeria, there was a popular bandit
bearing the name Shina Rambo. My name is
Sina, so we joked about it a lot till the name
stuck and when it was time to record my songs,
I felt it just made sense because it caught
people’s attention including Davido who loved it.
Many people tried to tell me to change it but
Davido insisted that I should not change the
